This Week In Pics

I can not believe its Friday already, this week literally flew by!  If you read other blogs, you've probably seen the blogging community going nuts over Net-A-Porters sale that started on Tuesday morning.  Their sale is the absolute greatest gift to online shopping as you can find the BEST deals!   Dolce & Gabbana dresses for 50% off, Jimmy Choos for a few hundred dollars, and Chloe for the same cost of an Equipment doesn't get much better than this!

I'm not sure if I should be ashamed to admit this but I was actually ready and waiting for this sale based off of my experiences from last year.  At 8:00 am, I was at my computer, Amex in hand, and  fully prepared to do some serious damage.  Since the sale only happens twice per year, word of their sale catches on like wildfire, and like the year before the site crashed within the course of 1 hour!  This was extremely frustrating as I already had many items in my shopping bag and lost them all....some of which were sold out by the time the site started functioning again. 

If there is one thing that I've learned from the last few times that I've shopped this magical sale, its that if you like something you need to buy it NOW!  For this reason, I ended up placing 4 orders on Tuesday morning.  Even if you are not sure about the sizing, or how an item will fit you, BUY IT!!  I bought several items in 2 different sizes because I wasn't sure how they would fit me.  Their free return shipping policy makes it super simple to return items that don't fit properly.

Here's what I scored:

Aren't those Chloe wedges to die for?  They were 50% off!  Same goes for the GORG Alberta Ferretti silk shorts.  I had my eye on the Rag & Bone linen shorts and almost bought them last month, so glad that I didn't!  Most of my goods should arrive sometime today, and hopefully I can show you some outfit of the day pics next week!  

How about you girls?  Did any of you shop the sale?  I would love to hear about what you scored!

OK, enough sale talk.  Here is the rest of my week in pics.....

I'm not sure if I will ever get over that this is where I live now

It was a skewer kind of night; mozzarella caprese pops, veggie skewers and organic wine we brought back from So. Africa

My go to outfit for the summer! Rag & Bone vest, Splendid maxi, YSL ring.
Dinner at one of my faves, Casa Tua.  I love sitting in the garden surrounded by candlelight...

Chelsea Flower off the shoulder blouse, La Marque for Intermix perforated leather shorts, Christian Louboutin heels.

I was craving a breakfast like we have in Italy! Mozzarella, tomatoes, avocado slices, hard boiled eggs and whole wheat toast drizzled with olive oil. SCRUMP!

Our friends made us custom sweatshirts for a wedding present! Thanks Dima & Uliya!!

Short shorts!!  Rag & Bone sweater, AE shorts, Jeffrey Campbell boots.

Tomato, basil & spinach risotto - one of my Pinterest recipes that I tried out.  Recipe can be found on my Pinterest board Food!

Rainy day walks require matching hoodies :)  Both are from American Apparel (they have the BEST dog hoodies!)
